The First Trailer For Lifetime's Michael Jackson Biopic is Here [WATCH]
Lifetime has released the first trailer for their Michael Jackson biopic, "Searching for Neverland", which stars Jackson impersonator Navi as the King of Pop. 

The promo video shows the controversy following Michael's death, which includes Dr. Conrad Murray being implicated in the fatal dose of prescription drugs that was administered to the late singer.

The film is based off of the 2014 book “Remember the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson in His Final Days,” written by Jackson's personal bodyguards Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard. The two men were employed by Jackson during the final two years of his life.

The movie follows Jackson as he attempts to balance being a father with the fame that comes from being a pop legend. 

The teaser clip shows Michael's two bodyguards Whitfield and Beard (played by Chad L. Coleman and Sam Adegoke) as they are interrogated in Dr. Conrad Murray’s wrongful death lawsuit.

The bodyguards are shown defending the late singer, with one stating, "He didn’t want to be the King of Pop. He just wants to be Mike. A normal American dad.”

Beard is shown saying, “We loved that man. We were the only two people actually looking out for him."

Whitfield and Beard's book detailed their experiences working for Jackson and protecting his family from the aftermath of his 2005 sexual molestation trial to his 2009 death. Whitfield's character is played by "Walking Dead" star Chad L. Coleman.

Jackson is the latest celebrity to be featured in a Lifetime movie, following the network's biopics for Brittany Murphy, Anna Nicole Smith, Toni Braxton, Whitney Houston and Britney Spears.

The late singer's biopic, "Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland" will premiere on Memorial Day, May 29th, on Lifetime.
